Milan fashion city / shopping
Milan is a great city for shopping. Shopaholics can indulge themselves. You’ll find an abundance of boutiques and large retail chains in an evocative setting of monuments like the Duomo and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. The almost completely car-free walk from San Babila (one of the most famous squares in Milan which also gives access to the well known Via Montenapoleone with very expensive boutiques) with the endpoint of the Castello (an attraction) you will soon more than half hours costs and claims you pass a sequence of stately and imposing buildings in which all boutiques, department stores and shops.
Sale in Milan
Sale periods fill the center around the cathedral are in fashionistas from all corners of the earth. Shopaholics especially from the Far East are well represented. For the boutiques are formed using thick rows of poplar fashion victims once in huge amounts discounted luxury items onto. At the airport you see in this period, people with tassenvol merchandise from the most prestigious fashion brands.

Milan on vacation
But if you decide to Milan in August to do (and that in itself is not surprising because it is a holiday months), will face a typically Italian phenomenon. Step out of the center and you will see the shutters of shops, boutiques and find homes hermetically sealed. The streets are deserted and the sun burns relentlessly on the asphalt which normally empty rows of cars before the traffic lights are about to roar. Milan is on vacation.
Following the closure of schools almost at the end of the month of June begins the exodus to the sea and the mountains. Mothers and children are the first to leave the city, looking cool in nicer places. They leave hubby behind a well-stocked refrigerator to the month in July to work out. In late July leaves pretty much the rest of the Milanesi. Shops, bars and restaurants to lock their shutters. It is sometimes hard to find a fresh bread or a cup of coffee. The city basks in the warm August sun and in an unprecedented, languid tranquility.
The highlight of this summer sleep is August 15, Ferragosto, a national holiday by the Italians as a tradition, all eating and bathing in the sea to spend. On that day there is nothing at all to do in Milan. By the end of August is life back slowly but it will certainly be second week of September before the city back in full swing is.
